    Is it safe for a single female in her 20's who is blonde and gorgeious to travel alone in columbia?

    Hello, I'm a 5'2'', 115lb blond young female that traveled alone to Colombia... While I have lots of travel experience, I felt very safe in Colombia. I agree that following the backpacker, youth-hostel route is her best bet! My mom was super anxious when I started traveling and now, 10 years later, she's quite comfortable with it! over 4 years ago

    Studying Spanish in Costa Rica

    I studied with CPI and really liked my experience. They also have centers in different areas of the country so you can move around and stay with the program. about 5 years ago

    Trekking trail to the Lost City?

    I just returned from Colombia and did the trek. There are currently four operators that will take you on the trek (helicopters are no longer an option). You have a choice of doing it in 4, 5, or 6 days. I signed up for 5 but switched to the 4 as it was less difficult than I had imagined. The guides told us that on August 1st, 2013, the companies would be merging into one company, but still would be operating out of their individual offices. I agree with the response above in regards to equipment. I brought one outfit to hike in (shorts and tank top), one outfit to sleep in (long pants, long sleeve shirt), clean socks for each day, sturdy shoes, shower stuff, BUG SPRAY, swimming suit (there are lots of swimming opportunities), headlamp or flashlight (most of the camps don't have electricity), camera, and a deck of cards (this is a must)!!! Also, there is less and less interaction now between the tourists and the Kogi people... Hopefully this will change again by the time you go! over 5 years ago

    Cartagena to medillan.

    I definitely recommend flying. I took the 13 hour bus and it took 19 hours. It was freezing cold as well. The flights aren't much more expensive and much less of a hassle. over 5 years ago

    Any recommendations on a nice but sort of cheap hostel in Cartagena with shuttle service FROM the international airport?

    I stayed at Media Luna in Cartagena. Great location, cheap, fun... Don't worry about a prearranged taxi. There are taxis lined up out side of the airport at all hours and if you are going to Media Luna or anywhere in Getsemani or El Centro, it's a flat rate of 10,000 COP. Confirm the price with the taxi driver before you leave so he knows you know the appropriate price. over 5 years ago

    Any recommendations for hostels in Santa Marta or Cartagena?

    The dreamer is a very nice hostel in Santa Marta. Many travelers decide to stay in Taganga instead of Santa Marta (it's a neighboring town). If you do, La Masia Summer Hostel is nice, social, and cheap. In Cartagena, I stayed at the Media Luna hostel and loved it. It's a cheap backpackers hostel and lots of fun! over 5 years ago
